  • : Online

This learning program is designed to introduce you to Crohn’s disease and its causes, pathology, and management. The program begins with an overview of inflammatory bowel diseases (or IBDs), such as Crohn’s disease, followed by a look at the epidemiology of this disease. You will then review the pathology of Crohn’s disease, as well as the basics of its clinical diagnosis and treatment options.

 

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to::

  • Define Crohn’s disease.
  • Summarize the epidemiological information about Crohn’s disease.
  • Describe the symptoms, pathology, and complications of Crohn’s disease.
